What is Valve Automation?
For a growing number of producers, valve automation is a proving to be a productive investment.
Valve automation is leveraging the latest technology in valve actuation to introduce features like electric power and remote monitoring and control of oil and gas processes.
In our experience, embracing this technology helps oil and gas companies in four primary areas:
- overall cost of ownership
- field efficiency
- operator safety
- environmental compliance
Valve Automation and the Digital Oilfield
As digital oilfield matures into reality, and Kimray is a playing a significant role in its development.
We are re-imagining processes with digital automation in mind and taking full advantage of emerging technologies in valve automation.
Our goal is to both identify industry drawbacks and to create the solutions to overcome them. In the end, we believe this investment will make our customers more productive and help our industry move into the next era. Here are a few specific ways we are contributing:
- Resources: With our growing library of training videos to our informative blog, we are sharing our experience and expertise online to help you improve your oil and gas production processes.
- New Materials to Battle Sand: Our valve trim options and valve coatings have undergone several material improvements to deal with the challenging conditions that modern drilling and completion processes are presenting for equipment. These improvements allow you to be more productive for longer in harsher environments.
- Valve Automation: Finally, our new electric control products, including electric actuators, pilot, and electric low pressure valve, liquid level controller, and liquid level switch are providing remote access to field conditions, and precise regulation of oil and gas processes.
